Yes, I thought the same thing. I have not had time to play with mine yet. Since yours worked after moving it. I may open mine and give everything a wiggle/reseat...
Will post back what I find.

Hi all. I recently picked up a hardly used SC-9540 which is a SC-25 relabelled for sale in Canadian Future Shop stores. I have a quaestion regarding updates. When I view the firmware update history on the Pioneer site for this model it appears that the three updates so far are to improve performance of the Home Media Gallery function, specifically related to Sirius and Rhapsody services both of which are unavailable to me in Canada.

Is there any reason for me to do the updates?

I wanted to know, I recently purchased a blu ray audio disc which is 24 bit/192khz.
If I try playing this on my ps3 with the sc-25, will it play at that format? or play it at 16bit/44?

Edit: I guess it will play fine by using the DTS and dolby tracks? I got confused with Flac file reading

My next question would be, when streaming flac files using the Home Media Gallery, does it display album art?

I unfortunately cannot check at the moment, everything is boxed up while I finish my basement.

I can't speak for the Flac issue as I don't stream, but your disc will play at 24/192 as long as it's selected in the PS3's audio setup menu. I haven't played any audio-only Blu-ray discs in my PS3, as I mainly use it for Netflix/Hulu/YouTube streaming, but I have an Oppo BDP-93 for disc playback, and a recently-purchased 2L Blu-ray (Magnificat) played at 24/192 through my SC-25, over HDMi, of course

I don't have an SC-25 nor its manual to look at. My SC-27 claims 24-bit capability for some formats but only 16-bit FLAC. There is a note about using HIBITSMP for 24 bits in the SC-25, search your manual. The SC-27 has an SRC, one of the features that set it above the SC-25.

I will check that out, as far as I have seen in the manual, 16 bit is the max for flac

Yah, that is what it looks like to me. In the real world I really doubt it matters...
